"The ancient myth of Oedipus, which still reverberates to this day, provided Sophocles with material for three great tragedies -- Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone -- that together recount the downfall of Oedipus, king of Thebes, his death in exile, and the action carried out after his death by his daughter Antigone"--Page 4 of cover

Alcestis by Euripides( Book )

8 editions published between 1936 and 1941 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Euripides' Alcestis - perhaps the most anthologized Attic drama - is an ideal test for students reading their first play in the original Greek. Literary commentaries and language aids in most editions are too advanced or too elementary for intermediate students of the language, but in this new student edition, C.A.E. Luschnig and H.M. Roisman remedy such deficiencies." "The introductory section of this edition provides historical and literary perspective; the commentary explains points of grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as elucidating background features such as dramatic conventions and mythology; and a discussion section introduces the controversies surrounding this most elusive drama. In their presentation, Luschnig and Roisman have initiated a new method for introducing students to current scholarship." "This edition also includes a glossary, an index, a bibliography, and grammatical reviews designed specifically for students of Greek language and culture in their second year of university study or third year of high school"--Jacket
